Hi families! Here are our activities and links for today:
Zoom morning meeting: Join us for our whole-group Zoom meeting from 11:00-11:30am today!
An art activity: Shadow tracing! An activity for indoors or out, it can be created wherever you can find (or create) light and shadow. A sunny windowsill, a patch of sun outside, or a flashlight!
You will need: paper, a drawing tool, and objects to trace!
Find shadows and lay a piece of paper so the shadow is on the paper. Then, trace the shadow.
How does placing the objects in different orientations change the shadows?
This can also be done with sidewalk chalk outdoors.
The time spent discovering shadows can create an amazing activity alone. So take your time while you see and create!
A movement activity: Body patterns! Create sound patterns such as clap, snap, clap, snap. Ask your child to listen and then repeat the pattern back to you. Encourage your child to create a pattern for you to repeat! This builds self-regulation skills and also has the potential to be a big body activity, if some of your patterns include big body movements (jumping jacks, runs in place, leaps, etc.)
